Treefingers - Extended Version

Recommended Posts

The library format is seemingly going to allow them to release a lot of KID A and Amnesiac material that might not have been released otherwise; it just depends when the physical releases will happen, or there is a small possibility that for this era, everything will go into the library first, and some special physical releases will follow?

Don't worry the newbs on reddit are eating this up.  Like they didn't know this stuff was released in back in the day when we had to buy obscure physical copies to get these tracks.  Just like they didn't know In Rainbows disc two was a thing until it was put on Spotify.  Now get off my lawn or I bring out the hose in my underwear.

I remember hearing the album announcement on Valentines Day, being with my girlfriend at the time and just not giving shit about her at that point. All I could think about was new Radiohead. I remember Ed being ambiguous about when it was going to be released, and I think the 18th release was a day early?

Anyway, I had pre-ordered the Deluxe Newspaper Edition but downloaded the mp3s for the night. I purposely didn't listen to the record for the whole day because I wanted to make an event of it. We go round my friends house (just the massive Radioheaders) and have some beers and a few joints and go up into is room, which was the chillest room (just one of those rooms with a nice pentagonal shape and orange lighting.

We put the first tune on, and hear the piano sample creeping in. Jesus christ. Words cannot describe our excitement. I remember hugging one of my friends straight away saying "this is the best thing I'm ever going to here" and it was only the first 30 seconds of Bloom.

It was a truly cathartic experience. At one point, 2 of us had to leave the room during Codex and Give up the Ghost because it was just too much! (I kid you not).

I truly think The King of Limbs is some of their finest work.

Yeah I noticed the reddits squeeeing over this disc 2 on Spotify as if it is the holy grail

Half of me is like, oh ffs you fuckin idiots, you coulda heard these years ago

Half of me is kinda jealous.

I'd love to have my memory selectively wiped, certain albums deleted, to hear music anew.

Whatchya gonna do?   Radiohead to them will more and more be what the legacy of the 60s/70s were held over us.  And the internet the closest thing to those years yer parents would buy you Beatles albums for x-mas.  That may seem a little grandiose a statement, but not too really...

does it indicate a decline...mmm yeah kinda but like I say, whatchya gonna do.  Try yer best to relate
